As we began to look into other enterprises’ ESG reports, we noticed that they consist of well-structured graphs and various statistics.
On the first page of the reports, the sentence “This report was written based on GRI(Global Reporting Initiative) standard’s key matching methods.” stood out to us. As it turned out, GRI is an international organization, which presents a global guideline of a sustainability report format. And most enterprises referred to the standards of GRI when writing their ESG reports.
GRI helps the publication of enterprises’ sustainability management reports by presenting ESG keywords and detailed guidelines. If one can make good use of GRI guideline tailored to each company’s situation, one can write a more systematic and trustworthy sustainability management report.
